: it is divided government. you have the senate run by democrats, the house run right the house run by republicans. leadership for a longtime hasn't really been able to completely control their members. there is a lot of opposition to president obama, which does not make compromise easy. we are at a unique time in history where no one is able to get along or agree on any of the big things. one last point i would make is a lot of republicans say they don't think that the measure should be bills passed in terms of whether congress is productive. i think they are trying to fight the battle on the health-care live coverage begins at 4:00 a.m. eastern. upset with the press, oo, because they cover my mental health work the first me meetings i had. then he never showed up anymore. mental health is not a sexy issue. we toured the country, found out what was needed, develop legislation. past the mental health system act of 1980. it passed through congress one month before jenny was involuntarily retired from the white house. >> tonight at 9:00 eastern on c- span and c-span3. >> the line is really the centr
of the agreement right there. what's the reaction of the obama admks? what's been the reaction of the negotiators? do they have egg on their faces? do they look a little foolish from this agreement they've struck? we haven't heard anything from the current negotiators. there's also no stop in the missile testing. if iran has a nuclear weapon, if they have the fuel for a nuclear weapon, and if they have the capability to deliver that weapon through missile testing, i'd say they've got something. there's also no stopping terrorism from iran and there's no stop in human rights abuses. many americans aren't aware that there are americans who are eing held hostage today in iran. when ronald reagan dealt with the soviet union to try to end the cold war, ronald reagan handed the soviets a list of dissidents that he wanted freed. in order for him to begin these talks with the soviet union. he sent a signal to the soviet union. it said in america, we believe every american life counts. that sent a very strong message. in the case of the obama administration negotiators they didn't even bring it up. they d
2009 when president obama took office, and not only has the trajectory been consistently in the right note when if you will we first began positive job creation in the wake of the great recession, it was right around when the affordable care act past. this is obviously not a direct correlation. but we are moving the right direction. the information i cited in the beginning about the positive effects of the affordable care act for reduce in growth in health-care costs combined with the steady job creation we have seen for so many months reinforces a number of things. continuing to focus on those trends, making them move in the right direction, and increasing job growth even further. with that, i will take questions. >> on the president's travels to africa for the nelson mandela services, could you give us specific details of what the timing might be? there is a memorial service close to the funeral. and will the president invite former u.s. presidents to accompany him? >> thank you for those questions. i should have noted that for those of you that did not hear the president speak in t
